We also used to play at shooting each other a lot.
I still hate Nintendo from the stranglehold on developers they had in the 80s... they demanded exclusivity, i.e. if you developed for the NES, you could not release games at all for competing systems such as the Sega Master System. This was pretty annoying as the SMS was technologically superior to Nintendo's system.
Like the way they didn't even have a power button?
I spent some time playing with my friends original b/w iPod a few years back and actually, I couldn't figure out how to do anything. Then I spent three minutes trying to find the damn power button. Wow, that was an amazing design.
I miss the CowboyNeal option.
Thank goodness, I couldn't believe nobody had mentioned Beowulf clusters yet. Is this slashdot, or NOT?
IE heaven would be: they cancel the Trident rendering engine and announce they're using WebKit.
Come on MS, you can do it!
Is there anyone who seriously is surprised by this? If so, I guess you haven't been paying attention to MS's behavior and plans for the past 15 years at least.
The Skepticism course would take care of this, too.
It says a lot about the wastefulness of institutions when it comes to buying hardware. I bet you the Defense Department could find lots of savings by sourcing their parts from Nintendo, too!
